My favourite pictures this week #BAAD2017

Our favourite couple is married and they look and have an amazing feel to them.
I pray that God would be the centre of everything they do and that He would guide them through every step in Jesus name, amen.

Here's a picture of them.



So I saw many fashion styles but only one looks like something I would wear with joy, so that's what I am sharing also.

I bet she's a star. Just know I like this look sha. Classy!


Hope you have a great week. I intend to have a good one.

Character lessons...




This is the simple lesson I learned today.

Funny thing, Jacob forgave and moved on

He's a deal maker.

He leaves other people to do the job but he makes the deals...

Good one.

The things that matter...

I don't want to ever forget the things that matter.

I gave my life to Christ in the year 2000. Our campuses were on fire for God and it was a wild fire with the most unlikely people surrendering to Jesus.

Were they being hoodwinked?

I doubt it. Sincerely do. 

I know how much effort the LORD put into convincing me to surrender to Him.

You see I was raised catholic. My dad's family were staunch Catholics so it was kind of shameful to attend another church. 

I knew this at the back of my mind as my friends and I attended fellowship every week. We got there a little after prayer and just in time for worship. I mean, why would someone spend one hour repeating some indecipherable phrases, what could it do?

I knew I could never really be serious in fellowship even though I loved the worship, I was born catholic and would forever be catholic for they were the first church ever and other churches that broke out of it were lesser churches...

Today I partner with more than one church in the furtherance of God's kingdom. I know how important this is, some of the people closest to me believe I have been hoodwinked. Why work 30 days and hand over your hard earned cash to a human being like yourself?

Time will fail me to talk about the times that God has schooled me on the tithes being His and that He receives them in heaven. I am not really interested in convincing anyone about tithes. I might never have believed if the LORD had not spoken to me.

There are schools of thought that believe that God does not speak. I believe that as God spoke to Adam in the cool of the day, so does He speak with me, else I would be comfortable attending church say 40 times a year in all the 365 days and keeping the harvest festivals. I didn't leave the catholic church just to attend another church that keeps to tradition.

I moved because the LORD asked it of me

Here's a copy of my partnership letter...




P.S. If you didn't read any of the gibberish I wrote, read the PDF in the above line. Click on it and save it and start learning what salvation entails.

Salvation is a day's decision and a lifetime journey.

The most amazing thing about my first year was that indescribable peace that always settled on me during and after worship. It wasn't prayer even though I prayed with everyone. Worship was the big deal. It could cement in my soul what all the ten thousand billion words being spoken by so many people couldn't do.

In my first year of salvation, I knew only one scripture by heart that stuck with me even after bible study and all:

It was "God has not given me a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind"

Take note: The bible writes Holy Spirit or Spirit of God in capitals 'Spirit'.

When it writes about other spirits like human spirit, spirit of fear, spirit of power, spirit of belial etc are other ways of describing influences

Some people fear the word spirit, please be aware that every human being also has a spirit. 

Proverbs 18:14
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear? Holman Christian Standard 

(Note that this is proverbs so they are not even speaking of the recreated human spirit)

1 Pet 3:4
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

(This is speaking of the born again man, of his spirit).

How does growth happen?

Growth happens when you meditate on the word of God and on His rhema word to you. In any given church, everyone is at different levels of growth and the LORD will always bring His word to you through the five-fold to provoke your growth.

Why do I say this?

One time I was in a cataconic state spiritually and I didn't know.

It was a special program. A visiting minister asked, who comes to church regularly? I put up my hand feeling very proud of myself. He asked, who can remember what they were taught last week?

As if my mind had drawn a blank, I could not remember even one thing. I, known for being smart and tops of my class, Tessa with the photographic memory and I couldn't remember a thing.

I was flabbergasted.

It also caused a change for me. That was a classic example of the enemy came and stole the words because I either didn't believe the word or I did not intend to put the word to practice. 

So you can actively be listening in church and yet not growing...



That's it for today!

Creating an atmosphere of worship & faith

Build an altar of His presence in your home and everywhere you are.
Come under the influence of God
Intentionally stay there

Create a way of thinking the word of God
Form a culture of the kingdom of God

Hear God's word intentionally
Create a space where Christ rules everything around you

Because you are intentionally conscious of Him
And intentionally bow to Him

REAL POST: A great day...

I was so excited to find this post.



Have you ever walked into a room and suddenly felt angry, fearful, sad and you were not feeling that way 5 minutes before walking into the room?

I had a lot of stress when I started feeling atmospheres. Most people stay silent about this and many people don't know how to use this.


I learned:
- How to partner with the word of God
- How not to partner with what is in the atmosphere
- How to build walls
- How to silent the negative committee that try to have a meeting in my head
- How to send wrong emotions or atmospheres back to the sender (na devil)
- How to grow by trusting in (partnering with) people who don't already think you are crazy (those who think you are crazy won't listen)

You will learn other things

Watch this video and tell me if you learn anything...



It helps you navigate the atmospheres, push back what you need to push back and retain the peace of God. 

Foundation scripture: Ephesians 6

Our war is against principalities and powers and not against flesh and blood. Stop making enemies with people who are simply responding to the atmosphere, just take authority over the atmosphere and bring the kingdom into bear, superimpose God's kingdom and shift the contrary atmosphere away, and establish the kingdom in that atmosphere.

I hate feeling helpless and I know that there are other people who may feel same way, who may be searching.

While I have been busy pretending to be an un-empowered Christian, many people have reached out to me for help and I have been unable to help them because I inadvertently refused to develop some areas of my life and for that I ask the LORD for mercy.

I take responsibility and I choose to submit myself to development as much as I can and as much as the Holy Spirit leads so I can do God's will on earth.

Yesterday night, the Holy Ghost said, refuse to pretend at all times, just observe protocols and be willing to learn.


Grateful for the midwives that the LORD has been sending. I have been defensive but I choose to submit to the will of the Father, let Him do what He knows best how to do as I yield.


I believe the Lord is pleased with this.

He desires for His saints to be equipped, empowered and to know who they are and I will do my best to share what I know, have learned and I will be open to learn what I don't know.

Thank You, Lord.

Current read and what Nigeria looks like at 57

Christianity can be frustrating.
Not Christianity
Christianity is simple

What is difficult is knowing what to do
and having all the answers.

Do I have all the answers?
Do other Christians have all the answers
No

That's why it is called faith though
aint it?

If you have all the answers, why do you need faith?

Hmmm
I am at crossroads
Anxiety attacks because a new step I guess
I am moving into my place
It is a huge step
A big one

Thank God for His faithfulness
So since I had an anxiety attack the whole of yesterday
I need to steady myself
I am reading a book that might help

It is called Killing Krytonite.

Written by John Bevere


Remember superman
He is all powerful
But krptonite is his weakness
We all have some weakness or the other

Grateful that I have the LORD
and so when I feel weak emotionally or otherwise
I can depend on Him

I did some counselling
I never was too great at receiving counselling because I overthink everything
But books have always been my safe place
I can receive knowledge and process it as I see fit
So I am making new moves

I have God the ever present One going with me on this one
I will take the krytonite out by the Spirit of the Lord
and destroy the root/source of krytonite by the blood

Making massive progress by the power, presence and the goodness of the God who is present with me at all times.

I will blog soon and let you know what I learned in the book
It is written by John Bevere.

Let wisdom be an ornament on your neck...

I love necklaces.
I have this silver necklace I never take off. I do everything without it. One of the knacks about me is that the moment I take it off, I may misplace it. So once I find jewellery I can wear consistently, I never change it.



So I want to talk about the value of wisdom. How you need wisdom in every area of life, including in your spiritual life. It is extracts from a favourite message. If you want to get the message, just email me at tessa.doghor@outlook.com and I will give you the message.

Part of my motto in 2017 is not casting pearls before swine, I need to qualify everyone before I give access. I am doing this not because I am nasty but to help someone specific and reduce gossip and criticism from naysayers. I do pray that only those with some level of faith visit this blog because until you have some faith, it will be difficult to get blessed. I am not going to STOP telling (preaching) about the kingdom of God though, I will just be wiser about the gift of God.

Proverbs 4:7
Wisdom is the most important thing; so get wisdom. If it costs everything you have, get understanding.
Treasure wisdom and it will make you great; hold on to it, and it will bring you honor.
It will be like flowers in your hair and like a beautiful crown upon your head

(My bible version) 

Proverb 3:21-23 says something similar.

The bible likens wisdom to putting on ornaments. 

The funny thing about the bible is that you think the scriptures that release power are just in the new testament. But as the years go by you learn that even the old testament scriptures are just as capable of producing power as the new testament scriptures.

Just make up your mind now that the power that comes from the bible is greater than any other power in writing or in application, i.e living.

If you have been born again, you probably have an experience in God and area in which you know God and you share or minister from that point of view but be certain that God is ministering to His children all over the world from where they are, to where He wants them to be.

My first understanding of wisdom comes from my eldest sister. One of the scriptures she consistently quoted was: "Wisdom is profitable to direct".

Funny enough, my first pastor was in the same class as ,my elder sister in high school and so their words echo in my head. Maybe it is that the people I respect when it comes to spiritual things speak so loudly that their words echo in my head or it is that the Holy Spirit brings these things to my remembrance, I am not certain but I hear some scriptures in my head and in my heart.

My sister was witness to a word I heard consistently for 6 weeks. I told her immediately because I trusted her. When it comes to spiritual things, I trust my family first with anything I have heard from the Lord and then my close friends. I tell my family and my close friends my dreams, some of them at least and many times in the last 10 years I have had some dreams of friends giving me instructions in dreams that produced wonderful things in my life when I practiced it in the spiritual.

How does wisdom come to man?
There is the wisdom that comes from reading God's word and it is to be prioritized and there is also the wisdom that is used for practical living, I believe that is the wisdom of God.

Let me explain what I mean by practical living. When I say practical living, I don't mean living like every other unbeliever on the earth, I mean living like the children of Israel, only a higher version. I mean living like a covenanted person, someone in whom God is actively involved in your life. I mean, living by phronesis. Phronesis means the wisdom of God.

Let me not get sidetracked. When I just got saved, I had terrible acne. Over the first 9 months of my being saved, the acne cleared from my face. Over the next 5 years, the acne cleared from the faces of all the members of my family and the younger ones who didn't have acne did not develop acne.

The series of events that yielded that deliverance from acne seemed natural. One of my pastors asked us to pray about the things that we wanted to change in our lives. Vain chic that I am, I prayed about my hair and my face. So a couple of weeks after the prayer one of my closest friends comes to me and says: "I bought Neo Medrol to use on my face but I found that it didn't work for me so I think you should use it".

She then seats and explains to me how to use it. I am only allowed to wash my face once in the morning and apply it on my face, then again in the night and apply it again. I was not allowed to wear cream or makeup. In college I didn't wear makeup so not wearing cream for a month would not be a huge sacrifice for me. I am a stickler for details so I did exactly as she said, reminding her that I hoped it worked even though I did not spend money on the treatment.

Long story short, I did not have even a single people for a whole year. For the next five years I did not get even a single pimple. My face got the chance to become smooth. I stopped using all antiseptic soap and that was how I started using bathing soap and found it easier to pay my tithes because I don't have one N800 soap to buy (at that time o, not now). Well that is how I discovered that I was pretty; story for another day.

I believe that was practical wisdom in action. Since the Holy Ghost knows the road to pass to give me information, He's using it just fine. My hair became fuller than it was then and I got strategies to make my hair that did not over emphasis the weak points.

So tell me, what are the ways in which you apply the wisdom in the word of God to your life? That it is bigger than what the world prescribes, that is phronesis?

Let's share.

If you are not saved and this is just like jargons to you, Visit this page and learn how to surrender your life to the leadership of the Holy Spirit and to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

I love strawberries, apparently God does too.

I love strawberry.
I love strawberry flavour yoghurt, ice cream, drinks, biscuits etc
I have taste now. You wan try.



2 Pet 1:8
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that you shall be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Holy Ghost is always teaching and I learned that if you go after the virtues listed in 2 Peter 1: 5-7 you will be fruitful in all that you do. Don't do them like a robot, ask the Holy Ghost to help you and teach you what to do.

There is yummy food in this, just look at verses 2-3 and see the benefits in them. God wants you to live the Christian life by divine power not just in church but in the marketplace.

I am unrefined in sharing. Please forgive me, I don't think I am a preacher. I am just a woman who God met.

Cheers.

I will continue tomorrow.

Renew your mind series: Be like God, more like Christ



I put this picture here so that we can speak out and not be tired and numb and so not speak up because we think that it won't change anything.

Bad things happen
Not because there are no good people
Or that the evil people are too much, too strong or too smart
but because the good people are mostly silent
Me included
If you can't do anything, you can at least pray

Relationships
The most important thing about relationships is talking.
Talk.
Relate with God
Talk.
Talk to Him

Slow down on the working and talk
Slow down on the doing and talk
Just talk.

Found these guys, I love their skits about God and the work of the Holy Spirit
Religious people don't talk to God
They go their own way
I don't want to be religious
I want to talk to God
Nothing else matters if I don't talk to God
There is no clarity when I talk to God
Just assumptions and many confusions
When there's confusion, everything else evil is happening too (God's truth)




Worry is a sign that you don't trust God.
Trust Him
Speak to Him
Listen to Him.

Why worry when you can pray
If you can't pray, then you are not trusting God
You are trusting in yourself or something else
Don't worry, pray
I am here, with you!

Note to Tessa.

2017: the best year yet



2017 is the year of the great outpourings...

I receive it.

This year will be the best ever full of the manifestations of the Spirit of the Lord and His divine help. It will be full of divine orchestrations and the power of the Lord and the leading of the Spirit of the Lord.

I personally commit to putting God first this year unlike last year.

Cheers

Blogging Saturdays #1

Listless

listless
ˈlɪs(t)ləs/
adjective
  1. (of a person or their manner) lacking energy or enthusiasm.
    "bouts of listless depression"
    synonyms:lethargic, enervated, lackadaisicalspiritlessunenergeticlifeless, vigourless, lacking energy, limpeffete

I just googled this word and it should describe me if I am in the flesh.
Am I in the flesh? No. I usually feel like this after I have won a major battle and I have won one even my flesh doesn't feel like it. My spirit is alive to the truth.


Meditation Scripture: 

37On the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood up and called out in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38To the one who believes in Me, it is just as the Scripturehas said: ‘Streams of living water’” will flow from within him. 39He was speaking about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. For the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.…

Water: The Holy Ghost

There are some things that are absolutes to me.

I love God. I love my job, I love my family.
I know about God's endtime agenda. Because I am conscious I am dangerous to the kingdom of darkness and satan is my enemy. 

I have a conquering spirit. I conquer because Jesus conquered. 

The enemy uses petty people and to win I must walk in the Spirit (that thing that the church needs to learn that I learned 16 years ago). When I walk in the Spirit I am above all that are in the flesh including the devil. When I view this world from the earth, do you know that it is pointless, the vanity in all that we consider important.

But I don't view the world from the earth, afterall I am not from here, I am located in heaven, seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenlies at the right hand of God.

I always find meaning in the word of God, that quick, sharper than a two edged sword word that divides between soul and spirit. 

Ponderings

No one ever tells you that fame is a trap. The only time it isn't a trap is when it is God given (his legendary promise to make Abraham famous, I don't think I am famous yet, God is still starting with me) and even then you get haters (people whom devil has given assignment, they are too busy about your life, they have no time to live their own) simply by having some claim to fame. I believe that fame doesn't matter if you don't use it as an opportunity to serve others and speak for those who can't speak for themselves. True service is one in which you are not serving self. Only you know when you are serving God and serving self.

I am grateful for 30 minutes where I don't have to think about the ones who hate for no reason. 

I have been asking God and the answer I got is that hate goes along with favour. There are just too many people that will always be pissed that you get things so easy. It's not fair, its favour. 

Hate is damaging not just to the one hating but to the ones who get affected by the hate

I have had so much opportunity to turn to hate in the last 15 years, so much, but even under pressure my heart knows it must choose love. I love still. I don't even need any encouraging quotes to choose love. Just the thought of having to pretend all day everyday is scary enough for me to choose. What kind of life is that having to pretend everyday that you love someone you don't and then pretending to God and grieving the Holy Ghost? No, not for me. I would rather hurt, forgive and keep loving.

No revenge for me. Revenge isn't sweet. It's manifesting the traits of the enemy. I am not his seed so I can't hate. I am the seed of God. 

My love may be criticized but I must still gently remind that the One who has the right to criticize my love is the one who got it right, Jesus. Yet He doesn't. Instead He supports me. Leads me, builds me, directs my life and always instructs me. 

I am like a grizzly bear right now so I am not talking much, don't need to erupt at people that are not in my close circle.

My heart bleeds for the body of Christ. They learn the secrets of the kingdom and can't use it for good. I begin to understand why Jesus prayed that they may be one and you and I are (Jesus was praying for unity as the Father and Him were). Man (and woman) are the most contentious beings on earth, and even though they don't have claws, they find any and every reason to make war with each other. Even though the Spirit should rule, the flesh takes the win almost every time.

Today I am learning old lessons, it has been 16 years since I received Christ and I find that the oldest lessons I got in the first year still serve me better than religion (the obedience of endless rules and regulations that don't give life but make people predisposed to bondage), I return to the first lessons again. The worst bondage will be to be in a circle that believe in the existence of a static God who does nothing, is blind and knows not how to judge justly. It is primitive.

It is primitive abi and yet I am not modern.

The heading on my bible is "Keep your freedom". It is apt. I need my liberty more than anything else, I refuse to be in bondage in any area of my life. It is for freedom that Christ made me free...

Gal 5:1
We have freedom now because Christ made us free. So stand strong. Do not change and go back into the slavery of the law.

So the Spirit does set free. From what, you may wonder. The law was a slave master. It kept the people reined in and yet never perfected them. It couldn't. It was made to show man his frailty and how without depending on God man could not win over sin. 

Gal 5:4
"If you try to be made right with God through the law, your life with Christ is over - you have left God's grace". 

God's grace set man free to be in God's presence again. God's grace gave man redemption and recompense and restoration in Christ Jesus. To leave grace is to depend on your works which even if you are perfectly good 24/7/365 days cannot produce justification before God. 

You might not understand the importance of not being in slavery...

Galatians 4:28-30, 31
"My brothers and sisters, you are God's children because of His promise as Isaac was then. The son who was born in the normal way treated the other son badly. It is the same today. But what does the scripture say? 'Throw out the slave woman with her son. The son of the slave woman should not inherit anything. The son of the free woman should receive it all''.

Those in slavery to the law have no inheritance in Christ Jesus even if they keep the law 100% perfectly. If you read my earlier post you can understand that the children of Israel operated under the blessing because of the promise that God made to Abraham. Abraham receive the promise not by obeying the law (Abraham lived before the dispensation of the law. The law came with Moses) but by believing the promise of God.

Those who believe like Abraham are heirs according to the promise. 

The access Christians have to Abraham is Christ (not obedience of a set of rules and regulations). Scriptures say, if ye be Christ, then are ye Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise. This is the right to the privileges of redemption. Redemptive rights are yours by virtue of belonging to the Christ. You can obey rules for 24 years but if you don't believe that God wants to do you good all of the time the enemy will strip you of confidence when you need it most.

"So, my brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman"

Paul was speaking to Galatians who had been born again yesterday, 5 months ago, 5 years ago, the factor was not time but the knowledge that they are accepted in Christ Jesus. Not that they are accepted by Christians but that they are accepted by Christ in the beloved.

Galatians 5:16
"So I tell you: Live following the Spirit. Then you will not do what your sinful selves want. Our sinful selves want what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit wants what is against our sinful selves. The two are against each other, so you cannot do what you please. But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not under the law"

Not many people preach about live following the Spirit. The bible is clear on this. It says live in obedience to the Holy Ghost. Then you will not do what your sinful selves want.

This means that you will have the power to do the right thing at all times if you are following the direction of the Holy Ghost who knows all things. It says that the flesh and the spirit are against each other. So you cannot do what you please. 

He says that if the Spirit is leading you, you are not under the law.
What does being under the law mean?
Please understand that there is nothing wrong with the law. It is just that the law could not please God. So I am not bad mouthing the law and saying that sin is acceptable to God.

To live under the law is to live under the curse. There were 600-something of these curses so breaking one of them meant operating under a curse (read Deuteronomy 28, it is one scary chapter to know that this is the list of rules and regulations given to the Jews and they failed over and over again so of course it could not perfect them). To be living under grace is to operate under the blessing.

Go and read Genesis to understand how Abraham lived with God under grace without obeying the rules and regulations but living acknowledging the covenant he had with the God who called him out of Haran to a strange land that He would show him.

Grace: being empowered to prosper
Curse: being empowered to fail

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Gal 3:13
Christ hath (a done deal) redeemed us from the curse, being made a curse for us (substitution) because it is written (in the Jewish law) cursed is every man that hangeth on a tree, that the blessing of Abraham might rest upon us through faith.

The blessing can only be transferred to gentiles by faith (by believing because our bloodline is not the bloodline of the Jews but by believing in Jesus we inherit his bloodline and his promise).

My bible puts it this way, Galatians 3: 14b ...Jesus died so that by our believing we could receive the Spirit that God promised. This speaks of the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit.

Get this, obeying the rules and regulations of the Jewish law is not faith.

Yet the bible says that the just shall live by faith.

By believing what?
By believing Jesus Christ.

So what do we do? Walk in the Spirit.

We are not called to obey the commandments. We are called to walk in love.


The bible teaches that if we love our neighbor, we will not murder him, steal from him, lie about him, bear false witness etc...

The law of love covers the old testament over and above in fact it is impossible to do it without depending on the Holy Spirit for help but this is the gospel of the kingdom.

Simple lessons that loads of people ignore... LONG POST

I believe God. I believe in the sovereignity of God. I didn't always believe that God would do me good. Having God's presence with me and being filled with the Holy Ghost was enough for me. It used to be enough. God thinks more. He thought more of me and came through for me.

So today I want to teach on believing God enough to minister.



I used to pray, Lord if you help me, I will preach. If you do this and that I will tell about your love, about salvation, about the Holy Ghost. Now at the crux of it, I hear so many voices dissuading, no, don't preach, are you ordained? are you appointed? what right do you have to preach that?

I want to listen but I can't.
The Holy Ghost won't let me.

Nature of man vs Nature of God, where do you draw the line?

How are you people?
I have missed blogging o. I have been living life
You know the adult life that involves paying bills. Working and paying bills.
Yes, that is what I have been doing and I believe that I am doing good.

I am working at what I love.
I am not under pressure to do work that is not honest
I am thankful that I am able to do work that is interesting and fulfilling
Even though apparently I have a lot of things to learn
Yes, very apparently.

So...
How have you been? Really! What has been happening?
I have had my crazy moments this year
Last year's crazy moments was me campaigning against Buhari
Because I know his promises were farfetched
The only one who can make those farfetched promises that I can believe is God
When any other person makes those far-fetched promises, I don't even listen.

This year's crazy moments has been me trying to meet all my targets.
They are huge targets but I see them coming together by God's grace
All things are working together

God has been faithful
I have been seeing His goodness, faithfulness, glory, honour, power,
and strength and blessings.
I have seen His defence, He has been a protector this past year
He has been a Father
I am truly thankful

He has been a provider and an on-time God
He has brought down lies and liars
He has conquered the enemy/enemies
He broke the siege in March and April
The Holy Spirit has been such a wonderful counsellor
The church needs your prayers, people
Don't be discouraged
Just lift up your eyes and call out to the LORD

I can only say thank you
The idols in many states in Nigeria has been brought down
What should be conquered now are the thought and imaginations
The bible says, "cast down imaginations"
Our job is to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ.
Anything that tries to rise above the truth of Christ is an enemy...

Just thankful to God for victory and faith and love and holy patience
Grateful for His faithfulness and mercy.
Cheers



Holla any time
I might not be a pastor but I am very good at trading in home with a backing in the word of God
I trade in hope that does not make ashamed
I follow God's word, not like the Pharisees but like Jesus

If I can help you in any way, I will. I will mostly be teaching you the things that I have learned. I am humble enough to let you know I am not perfect. I will mostly be teaching you or introducing you to Christ. I am still the church, just not within walls.

Hmmm, my picture taking days


Shalom!

On Ministry, life and what God wants



I have made up my mind to do ministry. Since the Holy Ghost won't let up and my heart always goes out to certain types of people to help them, perhaps influence them towards Christ. 

I have an idea of the kinds of people I would like to reach out to.

I think in pictures so instead of leaving an image of a serpent in your mind, I chose to leave an image of a dove in your mind, if you would honour the Holy Ghost, He will show up and help you. Tips about the Holy Ghost, He gets grieved when you don't obey and He is that great friend that you have been looking for all your life. He is the performer of the signs and wonders, the people you see are those who have yielded their bodies to be used by Christ as a vehicle on the earth. Congrats as you begin what is a wonderful journey of walking with God.


I have been blessed with the very first right pastor that helped form my basic ideas about people, God, God's nature, character and ability, the Holy Ghost, the sovereignty of God. my identity in Christ. I have also been blessed to have grounded leaders who have trained me and shaped me in different areas. One of the things I noticed in them was a fear of God and a respect for the things of God. Whatever I noticed I respected and cultivated also. So I understand the importance of having leaders

Why dreams and visions are important?


So many people keep getting saved.

I learned the meaning of apostate today.

An apostate means a person who renounces a religious or political belief or principle

Abandoning a religious or political belief or principle.

My prayer is that for as many as have embraced varying beliefs or principles contrary to the principles of God's kingdom or have exalted any knowledge above the knowledge of Christ that by grace they would drop those contrary thoughts, beliefs or principles at God's altar and instead accept the principles of God's kingdom.

That they would be truly ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ and His kingdom

LESSONS: I am learning from some believers on Facebook, be discerning though

For everyone who breaks a frontier in business, ministry or any organization that you want to start or run, you will face opposition.



I have handled some degree of opposition and by God's grace come through because I got training from some leaders known and unknown. By the grace of God, I have learned many things I will be sharing in my blogs. Today I will be sharing some things that will come in handy in rising to who God has called you to be.

When you come under attacks, two things you need to guard is your heart and your actions. When your heart and actions are guarded, you will have favour with God and promotion will come only because you remain faithful to God. This guy on the internet puts it clearer than me. You can't be the enemy of the whole world or you will get destroyed and no one will care but God because everyone else is trying to live their own life; only God has got your back totally.



Here are some guidelines that will help you: It is called FIVE KEYS TO HANDLING LIES AND ATTACKS.

Except you want to remain a nobody, because when you are nobody no one bothers about you, but when there is potential, opposition will arise. If you know how to handle it wisely, you will grow by the opposition but if you don't you will be destroyed and there will be no one to weep over you because the world is callous and will keep moving.

Learn, learn, learn.
This is the way to grow and become great. This is the process.

Work on your character: Your character is more important than your reputation and your character will eventually outrun your reputation. Keep your dream alive and fix your eyes on the One who will always have your back. You will get there. All the heroes of faith went through this and came out glowing. You will glow too. You will rise, you will shine.

Isaiah 60
It says arise, shine for your light is come, the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

The bible says that the light is come. The glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Never forget this. God knew you were not perfect because He called you to be His son/daughter. If your perfection or imperfection was going to be a problem, he would not have called you.

To walk with God, you need to understand that what He says is higher than what men, women, boys and girls will say. You need to understand that God is sovereign and omnipotent, omnipresence and omniscience. He can do anything. What He does He protects and He defends. You can trust Him. 

Isaiah 60 says that there is deep darkness in the earth but the Lord will arise upon you and His glory will be seen on you. So in spite of the obstacles, know that the glory of the Lord will defend you. The Lord will show you the way by the angel that comes from His presence and that like the children of Israel, the covenant will protect you and all that is yours, your family, your jobs, your businesses, your family nuclear and extended will be covered by that covenant. 

The bible speaks about the inheritance that the saints (those in Christ) and what they should have. The words of the bible says that we have received an abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness so that we can reign in life. 

God has given us (those IN CHRIST) an open door so that we can be able rule, reign and have dominion in this life. God wants us to be in a place of perpetual provision, protection and direction. The one in Christ is never stranded because the ones for the one in Christ are always more than the ones against no matter how many the number that are against.

You must learn how to walk in the Spirit and stay aligned because the most important thing in the life of any believer is to please God and faith pleases God. Walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5) and to disarm the enemy (the enemy does not mean other human beings but the devil) walk in love.

Just crucify your flesh and walk in love towards all men especially those you perceive to be your enemies. Just love. Romans 5:5 teaches you that you have the capacity to walk in love no matter what. Enjoy the article.

Fight and win in the Spirit. Refuse to enter into the flesh. Stay in the shadow of the almighty. You will find safety there in God's presence and the best thing of all, you are going higher!
